Bulls players reportedly believe Dwyane Wade will stay in Chicago

Bulls players reportedly believe Dwyane Wade will stay in Chicago

While the front office came out of a weekend meeting with Dwyane Wade with no official decision from the veteran guard on his 2017-18 $23.8-million player option, several teammates had a sense of the direction Wade was leaning.

He definitely sounds like a guy thats coming back, one Bulls player told the Sun-Times on Monday. I just feel like when youre talking about recruiting [potential free agents] and what you hope your [teammates] are working on [this summer], youre in.

Not that there will be much expected drama leading up to Wades decision in about two weeks, especially considering the amount of money he stands to make by staying in a Bulls uniform compared to hitting the open market.

The other factor that Wade pointed out several times this season after leaving the Miami Heat in the wake of playing his first 13 years on South Beach, and one that carried a lot of weight, was he didnt want to keep uprooting his kids.

With three championship rings already in the jewelry box, the 35-year-old future Hall of Famer said that ring chasing wasnt a motivation over the happiness of his family at this stage. And the fact that the Bulls did make the postseason and had top-seeded Boston against the ropes early " down 2-0 in the best-of-seven series " likely hasnt hurt his view of bringing the band all back together again.
